Today November 02 is “ALL SAINTS DAY”! It is shared with the coronation of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, King of Kings of Ethiopia and Elect of God.
I have wondered of the last few years why protestants do not celebrate Day of the Dead or All Saints Day? We seem to be terrified of death and seek to anesthetize it.
There is this great scene from the film “The Darjeeling Limited.” This father losses a young son in an accident via drowning. This father in the scene is washing his son in preparation for the funeral. All the while the father laments and caresses his son.
It is a powerful moment n the film. It captivated me and scared the shite out of me.
We have funeral homes that care for everything. We interim our dead away from our homes and are so transient that there is no real home to collect the ancestors. o wonder we are scared of death and all the trimmings. We do not do a very good job in dealing with this issue of life.
We can learn a lot about our faith in observation of others practicing their faith.
In other news Dog drops the n-bomb and is sorry. Is he sorry for getting caught or sorry that he may loss income?
Please pray for those caught by the “worst natural disaster in Mexican history.” 300,000 people impacted in this tragedy.
Today I hold great joy…I just want to welcome Joe to the Westside! I pray he does with the Dodgers that which he did with the Yanks.
